Using these principles as a guide, Kuna strives to improve the quality of life for our shareholders by maximizing economic growth, protecting and enhancing lands, and promoting healthy communities with decisions, actions, and behaviors. To these ends, we empower Kuna employees and those we work with to cultivate a work environment built on respect, trust, and cooperation.

What is Kuna?

Our firm name is derived from Northwest Alaska’s Kuna Formation – the name of the geologic formation that hosts the Red Dog zinc-lead-silver deposit. Red Dog is one of the largest zinc deposits in the world.

The name comes from the exposure of the shale formation along Kuna River, a small stream with headwaters in the Brooks Range.
